Unless you've been living under a rock for the past week, you'll have heard about All Elite Wrestling.

The brainchild of Cody Rhodes and the Young Bucks, AEW will be a new promotion in the United States, and has gotten fans buzzing about who will join.

Some huge names have been confirmed already, including former WWE World Champion Chris Jericho, who has since been edited out of WWE intros, and his profile moved to the company website's alumni section.

Despite this snub by the company, there's no shortage of WWE Superstars (both present and past) who would make great additions, as well as some we don't want to see as part of the upcoming promotion.

Here are three WWE Superstars fans should expect to see be a part of All Elite Wrestling, and two they shouldn't hold their breath for.

#3 Should expect: Hideo Itami

Hideo Itami has struggled to make waves, despite being one of Triple H's biggest signings to NXT.

Perhaps the most damning part of this, is that I had to google to find out if Hideo Itami was still part of the WWE.

Part of the 'NXT Five' (Himself, Owens, Zayn, Neville, and Balor), Itami was seemingly destined for a huge push, which never materialized thanks to an injury.

Being written out of storylines with a mystery attacker, Itami's return had little fanfare, with their never even being a confirmed attacker.

Now a part of 205 Live, Itami isn't even close to the main event of the show, as it seems the company has nothing for him.

Joining AEW would be a huge step for the Japanese Superstar, who would be given a lot more flexibility to showcase his incredible skills outside of the WWE.
